Concerts of Makarevich, front man of legendary Mashina Vremeni band, were canceled in several cities of Russia in recent weeks.
Makarevich shared the post on Facebook, that all the cancels are related to “pro-Ukrainian performances” however according to his words, his concerts with the Creole Tango Orchestra did not yet cause any “pro-Ukrainian actions” either in Russia or Belarus or Latvia or Moldova, or in America. 
“Well, Baku citizens, apologize yourselves to your audience who have bought the tickets, and at the same time try not to lie. I do not accept your apology," wrote Makarevich on his page on Facebook.
The concert was scheduled for October 31 at Baku's Heydar Aliyev Palace, a venue named after the late former president whose son, Ilham Aliyev, succeeded him shortly before his death in 2003.
On September 28, the concert of Makarevich has already been canceled. This is the second time.
